Die Cut Machines

Are you thinking about getting a die cut machine but know which one to buy? Here's a great article that compares the Big Shot (which Stampin' Up! carries), the Cuttlebug, the Cricut, and the Wizard:

Great information from someone who has all 4 machines!

I haven't tried the Wizard, but I owned a Cuttlebug until I bought the Big Shot and I have the Cricut Expressions. I really liked the Cuttlebug, but couldn't use it to demo, so it made sense for me to buy the Big Shot. I love it even more than the 'bug and use it all the time! To me, the Big Shot and the Cricut are apples and oranges- they do different things but I like them both.

Just some information to look at if you're thinking about buying one!

OK, and here's my sales pitch- the Big Shot is $99.95. Add a few dies and bump it up to $150 and you have yourself a workshop order, which qualifies you for a FREE hostess set, and $15 in FREE merchandise! Woohoo!
